Masks VI: Part 7

Part Seven

"On your feet, Fergusson," said the guard.

Gregory looked warily out at the strangely-uniformed men waiting in the corridor.

"What's going on?"

"You're being transferred to a federal holding facility for supers."

"But all my crimes were local! I'm not even a super!"

"You confessed to being a super," the guard pointed out. "Now move; these men don't have all day."

"I don't have powers!" Gregory, panicking, backing into the corner behind the bunk. "Not now! They took the Wishstone from me! I don't have powers!"

Masks VI: Part 6

Let's try this again. First time Text Edit kept messing with my editing and I lost a bunch of stuff which I had to recreate. Then, when I was just about ready to submit, Chrome closed this tab during the final editing online and wouldn't admit it had ever existed. I am not happy.

Part Six

"So, first, let's get some legal issues cleared up," said Blue Impact, scowling down at the fake. "Are you a legal resident of that estate?"

"Yes," said the shapely young woman, looking distraught and miserable as she lay on the rocky ground, wrapped in a makeshift Faraday cage.

Masks VI: Part 5

Part Five

"They can't just call this off!" yelled Stevens. "Not when we're actually winning!"

"That's politicians for you," said Basil, scowling. "More interested in public opinion than getting the job done."

He looked thoughtfully at Stevens for a moment.

"Looks like you get a reprieve. The big guys are too busy spin doctoring and covering up to worry about you and your mistakes for the moment."

Stevens glared at him, but kept quiet.

Masks VI: Part 4

Part Four

"They did WHAT?!" Randy shouted into the phone. "Why, those..."

"Please calm down," said Eve, firmly. "They're not in any danger and our attorneys are already working on the problem. I understand your concern, but do not go flying off to rescue them. They don't need rescuing."

Randy took a deep breath, and nodded.

"All right," he said, realizing Eve couldn't see him and was too far away to read him. "I'll stay out of it."

In the Legacy Universe, there are very few villains who are as feared as Baron Nevermore. Now Nevermore has returned with a group of powerful allies, and the heroes will have to work together if they are to stand any chance of saving the world from this evil.

Masks VI: Part 2

Part Two

"Ow!" Blue Impact yelled, ducking back out of the way and shaking her hand like Jackie Chan. "What's that thing made of?!"

Her best punch hadn't even left a dent. Or slowed it. Or caused it to change course. Blue Impact had hoped to disable the thing before the two youngsters could engage, but that wasn't working.

"Monocrystalline molecularly aligned iron," said Gadgetive, busy assembling something. "Energia, can you lift it off the ground for me?"

"Sure."

Part One: Holiday Break

The first and second sections of this tale are actually set before Part V. The third section starts shortly after.

The Leader of the huRK and his council of advisors were in a closed meeting, discussing a follow-up investigation of something discovered by one of the Fleet Leaders some months earlier.

"If that is, indeed, Tolnar's son and heir this presents us with a potential opportunity," said the Leader.

The event, not surprisingly, was cancelled. Or, rather, postponed, the new date to be determined later. That didn't mean anyone there could leave right away, of course, since they still had to give their statements to the police.

"I'd ask you to keep us advised," said Annie, sighing, after relating what she knew, "but after the poor showing we made I wouldn't blame you if you told us to keep out of this."

Masks III: Part 13

Part Thirteen: Realignment

"Well, that was unsettling," said Maddy Singleton, as she and her peers filed out of the meeting room nearly two hours later. "Bad enough that these people seem to think they deserve special privileges over and above what is granted to the average citizen, some of them aren't even citizens! I never could stand the English royalty, with their elitist airs and their eccentricities. Green hair?!"

"Uh, he's not English royalty," said one of her aides. "He's..."

Part Twelve: Saving Face

"I can't believe you're going to work with the Young Guardians," said Rubber Made, pouting a bit. "Luckyyyyyy... Do you have any idea what a prestigious situation that is?"

"Of course I do," said Energia, rolling her eyes. "I..."

She stopped, mouth open, expression first annoyed, then alarmed. Without explanation she closed her mouth and hurried to open a window, through which she subsequently flew.

"Guess she got a message from Eve," said Moondance. "Or maybe Glomahr."

Masks III: Part 8

Part Eight: Turnabout Intruder

The group in the assembly hall was an uneasy one. Nearly everyone looked exhausted and anxious. As they stood at the podium Lady Carver seemed to have more grey in her hair and even Eve appeared older. The agitation of the students didn't help matters.

"We have a list of students and staff who are known to have been captured," said Eve. "Copies of this and the lists of those who are in the infirmary or simply missing are being passed around. If you have a correction tell Andrea after this assembly."

Masks III: Part 7

Part Seven: A Corruption of Arms

The attack on the school began right on schedule. The only change being that the long-range bombardment was not directed solely to the Pine installations and super bases on the island; about ten percent pulverized an innocent section of jungle north of the bunker. This to draw the attention of those on guard there.

Masks III: Part 6

Part Six: Still Mortal

"You can relax," said Dr. Whiskers. "It's not cancer."

"Whew!" said Template, sagging with relief.

"I suggest you cut down on caffeine," said the other-dimensional feline. "That's the primary causative factor in fibrous breast lumps like this. I'd also suggest you self-exam more often. Don't leave it up to Colossa to find them for you. This one was large enough you should have found it weeks ago."

Masks III: Part 5

Part Five: Children of the Times

Maldren didn't quite breeze through the flyers' obstacle course, but he definitely did very well. There was applause and whistles from some of the others present, including the non-flyers who just liked to watch.

"Very good," said Eagle, recording the boy's score. "You're the fastest today, and among the top fifty."

"Top fifty runs, or top fifty flyers at the school?" he said, a bit of tension there.

Masks III: Part 4

Part Four: Schemes and Consequences

"You're telling me," said the man, barely able to keep from screaming, "that two billion dollar air superiority fighters with two three-million dollar missiles each couldn't shoot down one flying man?!"

That last actually was screamed.

"Think about what you just said," the General replied, confidently. "'One flying man.' This is someone with inhuman powers. Something not human. We still almost got him. We learned from this, Senator. We'll do better next time."

Masks III: Part 3

Part Three: Commencement

"Almost ready," said Andrea, sighing in tired satisfaction as she ended the staff meeting. "Some students have yet to arrive, but all prospects have been contacted, the dorms and most of the other facilities are ready..."

"Don't jinx it," said Junker, warily.

Well out into interstellar space, more than a full light year from Sol, a small huRK scientific vessel came across an anomaly. A manufactured one.

Part Two: Wonders and Exploitations

"I'm glad you checked in," said Eve, after Template delivered her report on the vampire girl. "We've got the farrier arranged for Cheiron, so you don't have to ask Chestnut about arranging one."

One reason for the personal report was that Eve was having a pre-semester meeting with some of the staff that afternoon. That gave Template the opportunity to tell her news to several of them at once.

"This is so cool!" said Energia, giggling like someone much younger than thirteen. "This has got to be the best Christmas gift ever!"

"We're barely out of the atmosphere, yet," said Template, smiling inside her helmet.

These second generation super space suits were much slimmer, lighter, more comfortable and, of course, more capable than the prototype Template had worn before.

"Wow," said Energia, falling behind a bit. "This is so..."

"You all right?"

Tink: A Strange Fairytale 13

Teri flew into her room landing on her bed at a run, if she was going to get to the the F3 meeting on time she had to hurry. Diving into her clothes box it took her a moment to realize that there were some changes to the room.

“Huh, who left the rose bush?” she asked the empty room, flying up to look at a tiny, well tended rose bush sitting on her windowsill.
